Poll: Creating a Monster LAST ATTACK ABILITY Prt2

  • Viral Bomb
  • Acid Blast
  • Viral Overload

0 voters

This is a secondary poll to finalize the last attack ability of our community-created monster. These abilities were the top 3 voted on in the last poll; so between these, choose the one you would like to see used the most. Reminder, here is the link to the former poll: Poll: Creating a Monster LAST ATTACK ABILITY so you can re-read the abilities if you need a reminder. Or just read below.

Viral Bomb: Spits out multiple parasites that cover a large area, stick to surfaces/wildlife, and explode if a hunter gets too close. It will also knockback hunters near the explosion. If a parasite attaches to someone it will explode and the hunters close by will also take damage. Adding points increases the damage and the size of the explosion. This prevents players from grouping up and allows for the monster to single out targets while they fight a different target.

Acid Blast: A skillshot that fires a continuous pressurized acid stream. Causes increased damage on the target, possibly obscured vision for brief timeframe. Acid weakens the targets defenses causing them to take more damage for a short period of time like Cabot’s amplifier gun.

Viral Overload: temporarily replaces all abilities with powered-up versions of the same abilities. Using this ability replaces all learned abilities with new ones (called Viral Fog, Viral Blade, Viral Crash, and Viral Explosion) (so if you didn’t get Vorpal Blade, you can’t use Viral Blade). The next ability used will end Viral Overload, and restore all learned non-viral abilities. Viral Fog will deal much higher DoT damage to the target, Viral Blade will leave an area of Dread Fog in front of it, Viral Crash will emit Dread Fog upon landing, and Viral Explosion will blast Dread Fog from all around it, hiding itself in the fog and knocking back all hunters.

Also, the vote will end this Friday aprox. midnight CST.

Might need to tweak that description a bit. :wink:

Unsure why?

#Viral Overload


It could just be a little cleaner. You said that the parasites can attach to a hunter twice when you could have said it can attach to animals and hunters. And then you said that the explosion knocksbackls the hunters twice.
Just a little feedback. (I am not giving feedback on the other abilities :wink: )

Ah ok, I basically said the same thing twice, lol. I fixed it now.

There we go. Much cleaner.
And Viral Bomb is tied for 1st!

are you gonna feel bad when they don’t make your monster? are you gonna hate trs for not making your monster?

hahahaha! :smile:
… no.

I head into this project with the thought that they will not create it. I won’t be let down if they don’t. If they do, I will be thrilled of course. That would be awesome and a pleasant surprise! We shouldn’t expect that they will. But even if they agree to actually make it, they will make changes so it won’t be 100% the creation we came up with anyway. These are more of a guidelines if they decided to toy with some of the community ideas.

The community and TRS actually share a lot of ideas. Our first creation was a turtle-ish monster that was scrapped mid-way through the project due to the unveiling of behemoth, which shared a LOT of similarities with what we had originally worked on. I would not be surprised if what we are working on now might have similarities to monster 5.

The developers are actually bound by contractual obligations not to read these types threads, so it is not like they are already drawing ideas from us…it’s more like great gaming minds think alike. They want what we want. Once we finish up our beastie we will formally present it to TRS, copyright free for their use, should they choose to use any parts of it.


Hey on your main page for the monster creation, the final abilitys link is to an older post that says the poll was closed already. Might want to fix for others.

Ah, I fixed it now, thank you. We had a first poll which closed, and this is the clincher for the last ability.

How long does this run till?

Friday I believe.

I dont know what to vote cause I dont know what the monster will be
Is this for all monsters?

Not at all.

You can find the description of the monster here.

It’s a community project. ^^

This is gonna be a real close one when it closes.

I was thinking exactly that. Probably the closest any poll has come so far. I can only hope viral overload takes it.
